Abandoned Bible College Dorms

This building, known as Schultz Hall, was built in 1908 as a dormitory for students at Fort Wayne Bible College. In the 1990s, the school became part of Taylor University, a Christian college whose main campus is in Upland, Indiana.

In 2005, a student set fire to the building, severely damaging the inside of the building. The building was boarded up and the students who lived there moved to other housing. In 2009, Taylor University decided to close down the Fort Wayne campus. Schultz Hall still sits abandoned, as it has since it burned 9 years before I photographed it.

Most of the former Fort Wayne Bible College/Taylor campus is on Rudisill Boulevard on Fort Wayne's south side. Schultz Hall is on South Wayne Avenue, just north of Rudisill.

All of my prints are available framed or unframed. I use black metal Neilsen & Bainbridge frames with white cotton unbuffered museum board for the mat and backing board for maximum archival protection. Photographs are printed on an Epson pigment printer using Epson's archival ultrachrome inset for long life.
